Pandemic EBT

Reviewed November, 2020

At this time, there are no more P-EBT funds after September. Do not throw away your card. More funds may be added later, but requires the federal government to extend the program.

Pandemic EBT is a special food benefit for families with children eligible for free or reduced price school meals.

Your family may be able to get Pandemic EBT, even if you do not get SNAP or other DTA benefits.

Using your P-EBT card does not impact you or your child’s immigration status. The public charge rule does not apply to P-EBT benefits.

See the Massachusetts Pandemic EBT Program website, brought to you by the Massachusetts Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA), Massachusetts Department of Early and Secondary Education and Project Bread.

For other food help, call the Project Bread FoodSource Hotline at (800) 645-8333 (TTY 1-800-377-1292).
